Horror Movie That You Need To See. Hills Have Eyes. Mutants.

When it comes to horror movies, do you know what REALLY freaks me out? It's not ghosts or serial killers or Larry King.

(yelling from the back): Is it Devil stuff? I bet it's devil stuff.

That might be near the top of the list but what really gets me are deformed mutants. That and mental institution patients. And no better place to see them than in the remake of The Hills Have Eyes.

I'm telling you it's pretty freaky. So what horror movies do you love?

(Here's the trailer. Warning: the trailer's not that scary)

It's a pretty common scary movie formula:

Happy, clueless family + trailer or RV+ hot desert + grizzly gas station guy who knows something but he's not telling + nuclear fallout = low budget scary move. Seen it a million times...

CrotchPains - man you are sooo wise.

Scope said...

Not into horror at all, but don't mind me a little "Toxic Avenger" every couple of years.

Hey, did you hear what I did this weekend?

Dr Zibbs said...

Scope - I did hear. Congrats. I already wrote a post that will be going live in a few hours.

I know I've commented like 2 times but I want to say you suck.

This WAS scary!! and now it's in my head and my house looks like a freaking airport!

And I can't watch any scary movies- not any which have someone watching others while hiding, not where the phone dies, not where there are basements, attics, ghosts and yup devil stuff is just most certainly out of bounds.

Dr Zibbs said...

Mrs K - I swear I'm not kidding so please take this seriously. After I got you last comment I tried to call you but there were some phone issues. I heard something on the other line.it was..

..it was..OK to make a long story short, I called the phone company and..

..THE CALL WAS COMING FORM INSIDE YOUR HOUSE!!!! Get OUT of your house!!!!

Mrs. K said...

good one. Thing is - I'm a complete and total wuss when it comes to that but if you knew what happened to my friend two years ago- you'd be a little jumpy too!

I have to turn the phones off at night because if they ring while i'm working or something it makes my heart jump. So yeah that's nice- poke the wound, add some salt why dontcha? :)

Dr Zibbs said...

Mrs K LOOK OUT THERE'S THAT THING RIGHT THERE!

Naa. I'm just kidding with you.

WHAT'S THAT?!!

Wow. You are jumpy.

I like scary but mutant what-evers don't do it for me.

The devil though....that's another story.

Dr Zibbs said...

Son of A - oh yeah. I'm spooking your ass when I see you. Yup. It's official.

I do not like things that jump out from the dark. It's that simple. It could be cute little baby lambs and I would jump out of my skin. I'm a horror movie wuss.

Secretia said...

Since you reminded me, I'll probably see it again now!

Dr Zibbs said...

PHD - Oh yeah. I hate that too.

Kristen said...

That was a disturbing movie. You wanna talk scary? This scene from Exorcist III gets me every single time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zH8ynu0jRvY

Dr Zibbs said...

Kristen - holy shit! That was great. I don't think I saw the Excorcist 3. I need to rent it.

Kristen said...

That's probably the highlight of Exorcist 3 (don't worry - it will still scare you), although I think there is also ceiling creeping in it, which I also find very, very scary.

Dr Zibbs said...

Kristen - I'll check it out. And I agree, the ceiling walking is scary (loved it on Nightmare on Elm Street) but the walking down the steps on all fours is scarier.
